På en fråga under en intervju med Bloomberg om Donald Trump skulle kunna ena landet så som George W Bush gjorde efter 9/11 eller Barack Obama gjorde efter Sandy Hook, svarade Trump så här:
I think I’m much more competent than all of them. I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time.
Och när intervjuaren pushade tillbaka fortsatte Trump:
He was president, OK? Don’t blame him or don’t blame him, but he was president. The World Trade Center came down during his reign.
Jeb Bush har under kampanjen försvarat sin bror och pushat för orden ”He kept us safe”. Han valde att svara Trump på twitter.
How pathetic for @realdonaldtrump to criticize the president for 9/11. We were attacked & my brother kept us safe.

Som Trump svarade på…
No @JebBush, you’re pathetic for saying nothing happened during your brother’s term when the World Trade Center was attacked and came down.
